Brain MRI cavernous angioma ?

Brain MRI cavernous angioma ?

Commonly seen on MRI: Cavernous angioma is a cluster of tiny but abnormal blood vessels that can be seen in the brain or spinal cord. Many people never experience symptoms from a cavernous angioma and may never even know they have one. They do have a tendency to bleed and depending on the location and size, they can cause seizures or other neurologic symptoms. ...Read more

Mri (Definition)

Magnetic resonance imaging named for the effects of the strong magnetic field upon the atomic and molecular phase or spin and the image created when that magnetic field is altered and the excited particle changes gibing off a signal that is recorded and interpreted by a complex computer algorithm, ...Read more

No contrast CT showed ill defined hypodense area on hepatic lobe. Ordered new CT w contrast w liver mass protocol not hemangioma protocol concerning?

Get iv contrast CT: There are many reasons to have a liver mass, more often than not, they are benign, but clearly depending on past medical history, It is difficult without contrast to differentiate these lesions, there are various ways to give intravenous contrast. A hemangioma protocol is also known as a triphasic study, allows one to look at three phases of liver perfusion but more complex to do. ...Read more

What CT Scan conclusion means? "three arterialized hepatic lesions showing washout on portal venous phase imaging upon background nodular cirrhosis"

What CT Scan conclusion means? "three arterialized hepatic lesions showing washout on portal venous phase imaging upon background nodular cirrhosis"

Findings. Sx? Biopsy: 1st, the basic problem is nodular cirrhosis - there are signs of liver damage (from what cause, only a doc who knows your history can tell). There are 3 lesions- or nodules- in the liver, fed by an artery, which takes up the dye that was injected at the time of CT scan. The dye washes out, so that's encouraging, but whatever the nodules are, you'll need a biopsy to figure out degree of livr damage ...Read more

Normal exams.: The description you have posted is that of a normal liver. Feel free to ask your primary physician to explain the outcome of all of your tests. If you would like a second opinion of your MRI, feel free to schedule a HealthTap Concierge Inbox Consult with me and I can review your images and provide a complete explanation. ...Read more

My aunt is alcoholic CT showed Atypical Hepatoma hypodense lesion in lobe 4 of liver abutting gall bladder splenomegaly varices & portal HTN. Rx?

See GI doctor: Looks like that she has sustained major liver damage from the alcohol. She needs the expert care of a GI doctor and is at risk for upper GI hemorrhage as well. ...Read more

Mri shows t2 hyperintensity in the right hepatic lobe measuring 2.1 cm. Hepatic ultrasound strongly advised. Is this a lesion, mass, malignant?

Mri shows t2 hyperintensity in the right hepatic lobe measuring 2.1 cm.  Hepatic ultrasound strongly advised.   Is this a lesion, mass, malignant?

Get US: Get the ultrasound to further characterize the lesion. Likely benign but doppler ultrasound will further determine features that define etiology especially if solid or cystic, vascular (blood vessel) or not vascular if necessary a biopsy will provide definitive answer if it is not benign vascular lesion on us. ...Read more

Liver cyst on CT scan need biopsy?

Liver cyst on CT scan need biopsy?

Almost certainly not: Provided it is a 'simple cyst' which is a fluid filled sac. Sometimes if there is debris or septations as cyst may be aspirated. If you are asymptomatic and the lesion is a simple cyst, it's best left alone. ...Read more

Had MRI spine. Showed small T 2 hyperintense splenic lesion may represent cyst or hemangioma. Is this concerning?

Not at all: As long as they are small there is no significant risks. Small splenic cysts are fairly frequent findings. Hemangioma of the spleen less common than in the liver but as long as they are small cause no significant issues ...Read more

Can CT w/contrast reliably characterize small (<5mm) hepatic cysts?

Cyst fluid filled: Cysts are fluid filed, typically benign. Solid could be benign (not cancerous) or not. Small are typically benign. Ct may not be able to differentiate small solid abnormalities. Plan depend on other factors-may be monitor over time for stability. Cysts may not get followed. ...Read more

CT Brain shows mass prepontine cistern CPA meningioma. Symptoms consistent with diagnosis. MRI contrast show no lesion. Symptoms persist! Now what?

CT Brain shows mass prepontine cistern CPA meningioma. Symptoms consistent with diagnosis. MRI contrast show no lesion. Symptoms persist! Now what?

Very strange: Not certain what to make of the disparity between the CT scan and the MRI. In some cases, a lesion is so small that it is missed by the artifact created by the thickness of the MRI slices. I would ask your doctor if an MRI of the brainstem with "thin slices" might be reasonable to confirm/refute the CT--with and without contrast. Take care and stay healthy! ...Read more

3mm hypodense liver lesion in caudate lobe & two 3mm hypodense pancreatic head lesions on CT in setting of carcinoid workup. Can these be tumors?

May or may not be: It takes time and follow up CT scans to see if these tumors are growing in size. if they are not tumors(cancer) it will remain unchanged in size over a period of 3-6 months. A biopsy may be required to confirm it in case these lesions are increasing in size(growing bigger). They are too small to do a biopsy now, need to be at least 1Cm or bigger. ...Read more

What is t2 hyperintense r/lower pole renal lesion demonstrates hyperintensity on non fatsaturated t1 image.Post contrast vascular phenomenon MRI Scan?

Appearance descripti: These words (presumably from a radiology report) describe what the MRI looks like (hyperintensity - very bright) & the location (lower part of the [renal] kidney) & the way the images were obtained (T2 weighting & fat-saturation T1 & dye [contrast]). All this means nothing without symptoms. For a doctor to help you, he/she needs to know what the MRI was trying to diagnose. W/o symptoms, means noth ...Read more

What causes hypodense liver lesions?

What causes hypodense liver lesions?

On a CT scan?: The differential diagnosis for hypodense lesions on a ct scan of the liver is quite expensive. This would include everything from benign lesions such as hemangioma, liver cyst and benign tumors to liver cancer and metastasis. ...Read more
